The Troy Ave saga continues.
The rapper pleaded not guilty to attempted murder charges on Wednesday (June 22).
The Brooklyn emcee appeared in a Manhattan courtroom for his first public appearance since being arraigned on attempted murder charges during Memorial Day weekend. He officially pleaded not guilty after being read the indictment handed down by the District Attorney’s Office: one count of second-degree attempted murder and three counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
Troy was reportedly led into Judge Ronald A. Zweibel’s courtroom by a police officer, still in a wheelchair due to injuries from the Irving Plaza incident and wearing sandals.
“The indictment stems from an incident at a T.I.-headlined concert in which one man, Troy’s bodyguard Roland “Banga” McPhatter, was killed, and three others, including Troy, were wounded. The shooting began in the venue’s green room and spilled out onto a balcony, where security footage released by the NYPD appeared to show Troy walking with a bloodied leg and firing a shot. The rapper was arrested on May 26 and has been held at Rikers Island since.”
According to Assistant District Attorney Christine Keenan, Troy will also be charged for two additional guns that were found in the car that drove him to NYU Langone Hospital the night of the shooting.
